Mini Skein Club

Are you knitting the BeeKeeper's Quilt or the Mitred Square Sock Blanket? Do you like to do mismatched socks or stripes of different colors? Scrap-yarn projects are so much fun and a great way to use up stash, but what if your stash isn't big enough? Or maybe you just don't have all the colors you need. If you need small amounts of lots of different colors on sock weight yarn, this is the club for you!

I love a man with a bit of facial hair. Even more, I love a healthy man. Since the Unique Sheep is run by women we can't join the Movember movement as true participants -- no one wants to see us try to grow a mustache--but we've thrown in our support with the Balls for Balls colorway. One of our "colors for a cause" 50% of sales of this colorway are donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and Live Strong through Movember.
